Pine Road Grows Great Kids

- A MESSAGE FROM DR. SWANK -

Dear Pine Road Families,


Winter weather continues to tease us this school year. However the possibility of cold temperatures and unpredictable weather will likely continue to be our norm for the next few months. Please be sure that you send your child(ren) prepared for the weather as we always do our best to provide our students with a minimum of thirty minutes of recess each day.


Thank you to Mrs. Thierolf and Mrs. Lemos for organizing our 3rd Annual MLK Day of Service. We had a great turnout. Thank you to everyone that joined us for this wonderful morning of service!


Sincerely,

Brian J. Swank, Ed.D.

Principal

News from the cafeteria

Breakfast and Lunch menus are posted on a new interactive website, Nutrislice. Our innovative and interactive site and mobile app makes our school menus more convenient and informative than ever before! Download the Nutrislice App from the App Store or get it on Google Play and then search Lower Moreland.

Food sold during the school day is required to meet nutrition standards that are referred to as Smart Snacks. Smart Snacks encourage students to make healthier snack choices to help give them the nutrition they need to grow and learn. Check out the 2019-2020 price list for the list of snacks we serve in the cafeteria.

Pine Road had a special visitor last week from Molly the Cow, The Nutrition Group's Mascot! The students had a wonderful time seeing Molly during lunch. The students were also given Strawberry Peach Smoothies as their fruit of the day.
